This thing is over today and it only has info from day 1...what gives? Also what's with the virtual booths. I don't see any way to access them.
Their coverage is worse than last year! Any other sources?Star Fangled Nut

This is pitiful! Does anyone else have coverage of Interbike? I know both and have coverage but not many photos at all. I would like to see pictures from the Airborne booth myself.

By the time more complete info for 2003 is posted on Cyclingnews, Velo News, and MTB Review, it will be time for the 2004 Model year!

CyclingNews has been a complete rip off so far. Their road bike info from Eurobike and EICMA was pitiful. Not only did they dibble out limited information over the last two or three weeks, they failed to provide any detailednew product news regarding Wilier, Bianchi, Orbea, Merckx and Colnago(some very limited photes/info on these last two), and many others brands for 2003.

There must be somebody out there on the Web that has more complete info.

I'm not defending, but how can it be "a complete rip off" when we get it for free over the internet?

...and also in Gallery.
Maybe Interbike 2002 just sucks.DaThumb

or maybe there's not really much that's new and worth talking about. It's just bikes after all. It's not that big of a deal if XXX manufacturer jumped on the integrated headset bandwagon, or if XXX shoe company just made the quantum leap from 3 to 4 velcro straps.
If that was the case we wouldnt have anything to talk about (nm)ColnagoFE

...I did notice a LOT of repeat stuff from last year. Stuff that was touted as "New" last year, was still being promo'd as new this year. Some booths were almost exactly identical to last years.

Of course, there were some key highlights such as the Specialized Epics, Maverick Forks, Shimano XTR, and others. Plenty of new carbon aero bars. The Colnago CF3 was lost or stolen and never made it to the show.

Greg Lemond can still draw a big crowd. George Hincapie and Phil Liggett were there signing autographs. Phil Liggett is the friendliest, gracious guy and no finer choice could be made for a spokesman for the cycling world.
